Why Software Rules AI Success at the Edge

Why Software Rules AI Success at the Edge
by Bernard Murphy on 05-11-2022 at 6:00 am

flexlogix min

It is an unavoidable fact that machine learning (ML) hardware architectures are evolving rapidly. Initially most visible in datacenters (many hyperscalars have built their own AI chips), the trend is now red-hot in inference engines for the edge, each spinning new ground-breaking methods. Markets demand these advances to … Read More

Fast model evolution Flexibility is key

While many tough problems relating to computing have been solved over the years, vision processing is still challenging in many ways. Cheng Wang, Co-Founder and CTO of FlexLogix Technologies gave a talk on the topic of edge vision processing at Linley’s Spring 2022 conference. During that talk he references how Gerald Sussman… Read More

Benefits of a 2D Network On Chip for FPGAs

Benefits of a 2D Network On Chip for FPGAs
by Tom Simon on 04-12-2022 at 10:00 am

Achronix FPGA 2D NoC

The reason people love FPGAs for networking and communications applications is because they offer state of the art high speed interfaces and impressive parallel processing power. The problem is that typically a lot of the FPGA fabric resources are used simply to move the data on or off and across the chip. Achronix has cleverly … Read More

5G RAN architecture

5G’s Departure from Its Predecessors

In each move from 1G to 4G people became accustomed to seeing the new generation as primarily offering increased bandwidth and efficiency. It would be a mistake to view the transition to 5G along these same lines. 5G takes Radio Area Networks (RANs) from a use model primarily for cell phone communications… Read More

Unlocking the Future with Robotic Precision and Human Creativity

From the perspective of all time for recorded human history, the last 300 years (a blink on that time scale) has seen incredible, life-changing and world-changing advances. Water and steam-driven machines first showed up in the 1700s. This is often called Industry 1.0. Powered assembly lines in the late 1800s became Industry … Read More

DAC 2021 – Embedded FPGA IP from Menta
by Daniel Payne on 01-17-2022 at 10:00 am

Menta min

I’ve followed the enthusiastic market acceptance of FPGA chips over the decades, and even semiconductor companies like  Intel acquired Altera, while AMD tries to acquire Xilinx. The idea of field programmable logic makes a lot of sense for use in systems designs today, and it was inevitable that a company like Menta would… Read More


2D NoC Based FPGAs Valuable for SmartNIC Implementation

2D NoC Based FPGAs Valuable for SmartNIC Implementation
by Tom Simon on 12-29-2021 at 6:00 am

2D NoC SmartNIC

Smart network interface cards (SmartNICs) have proven themselves valuable in improving network efficiency. According to Scott Schweitzer, senior product manager at Achronix, it has been shown that SmartNICs can relieve up to – and perhaps beyond – 30% of the host processor’s loading. SmartNICs started out taking… Read More
